A fight at a mall in Sacramento sent shoppers running yesterday.

The director of mall security says 20 people were involved in the brawl. Four were arrested.

Some customers say they heard loud sounds like gunshots, but officials say they found no evidence of a shooting.

Many stores went into lockdown, closing their metal gates, when the fight started.

The mall was reopened a few hours later.
